Hello everyone, welcome to my blog! My name is Julie. I’m a 24 year old psychology student from Belgium.

I’ve been suffering from eczema and allergies since I was a little kid and until a few years ago, I was able to manage it with corticosteroid creams. When I noticed they didn’t seem work as well as before, and had worsening eczema spreading all over my body, I started to look for alternatives. I bumped into the terms “TSW/Topical Steroid Withdrawal” and “Red Skin Syndrome”(you can learn more about this by clicking on the tab Info on TSW), and realised the steroid creams might be the culprit behind my worsening skin. So, I decided to quit using these creams cold-turkey style: a tough journey, but hopefully worth it!

I’ve started this blog to (a) raise more awareness about TSW and eczema, (b) support others who are going through the same, or are planning to, (c) share “tips and tricks”, and (d) monitor my progress.

If you would like to know more about me or have a question about something, feel free to ask! You can send me an e-mail via the Contact page 🙂
